You can see the site here spirithouseclothing.com and see some of the imagery from the shoot here Spirithouse Spring 2018

Here's a new commission for the New York Hilton Hotel. https://williamsstudio.com/blog/2014/2/heres-a-new-commission-for-the-new-york-hilton-hotel

I work extensively with the fine art firm Soho Myriad and through them I was commissioned to produce a large four paneled piece for the new remodel of the New York Hilton Hotel. The New York Hilton is one of the largest hotels in the country and has been going through this remodel for the last three years. I was brought in to the project early on to suggest photography for the rooms, suites and public spaces / galleries. Some of my work has found it's way into the hotel but by far this commission for the reception will get the most exposure to the general public.

This was a difficult shoot…..lots of permits because it was Los Angeles City Hall as a location.  The session was difficult in another way, the city workers wouldn’t leave us along.  The smile I got here was followed by lots of frowns and gestures.  The client loved the final results which made up for the hassle.  I believe that was the last time I booked a shooting location just because I loved the marble bench.
